“Our partnership has impacted all areas of our fundraising…”
This month: Buffalo City Mission (Buffalo, NY)
Aubrey Calhoun, Associate Executive Director, writes:
It’s with pleasure and excitement that I reflect on the positive results of our partnership with BDI, which has impacted all areas of our fundraising efforts.
- Your team has worked with us to develop a comprehensive strategy for maximizing our digital outreach. Income from our digital channel has grown significantly – 14% year over year.
- You have responded with flexibility and new ideas to help us meet our goals for growing our donor file and donated income. Our annual direct mail acquisition program generated 44% more responses and increased revenue by 35% year over year.
- Your team also provides ongoing guidance in setting detailed annual cash-flow projections. Without your patience and partnership, we would not be able to successfully plan for our fiscal year.
These are just a few of the many reasons we are so appreciative of those in your organization who are always ready to assist us in creating a solid financial foundation for our ministry.
